My trip to Boston was like a whirlwind of memories and new experiences thrown into the mix. It was wonderful and I’ll probably write about different aspects of it in the next few days. Watch this space.
Actually this book has nothing to do with the trip – I only found it now as an image to brighten up this blog entry. But it was a book we read in 3rd grade back in Payson Park School in the 1940’s in Belmont Massachusetts. The school burned a few years ago so I can’t show you a picture of it in 2017. But we did visit the old neighborhood where I grew up.
Me (Janet) in the 1940’s poised and posed for the first day of school. The family home looks good – in May 2017 it is still there – looking even spiffier. Pictures to follow.
Meanwhile below is a picture from the late 1930’s – my aunt and my grandmother sitting on the front steps of the house in Winchester. My cousin Betsy and I are the little girls. The house is still there in Winchester – in May 2017 the house is 100 years old. I met the current owner. My cousin Betsy now lives nearby. She was one of the hostesses for my whirlwind visit this past week. Memories abound.
